Foundation Yoga Teacher Training 4

Take your practice to the next level – in paradise.

Vikasa is truly a paradise location which adds an extra dimension to your yoga practice as a whole. The environment is conducive to relaxing where you can disconnect from the hustle and bustle and allow you to focus inwards on your practice and spiritual growth.

Here at Vikasa our core values are the three ways in which consciousness expands. This expansion starts with the self, it grows through our minds, bodies and energy until we are powerful motivators of connection and manifestors of change through our communities and throughout our world.

The course is structured around various techniques, vastly ranging according to the expertise of our diverse team. However, they always connect to our core values.

We believe in the power of self initiative, self love and personal evolution. The only way to truly have an impact on the world is to start with the impact of our own vibrations.

We believe in the power of community; that a small group of like minded people have the power to change the world.

And we believe that those who have a position of power have a responsibility to help those in need. We actively reach out to our community and try to improve what we see.

That is what at the heart of our teacher training program – equipping you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to connect with others and teach the benefits of yoga so that other may experience the transformative effects.

Even if teaching is not your goal, we know that you are a conscious individual with the desire to expand your practice and embrace a yoga lifestyle. Four weeks in paradise with us, will help you do just that.

Are you ready to evolve?

THE VIKASA YOGA METHOD

Vikasa means evolution when translated from Sanskrit. The Vikasa Yoga Method is based on individual evolution and spiritual development. Our world and nature are in a constant state of change. Our primary goal is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate that.

The Vikasa Yoga Method is an integral system of yoga based on classical Hatha yoga lineages, with influence from Himalayan Buddhism and Taoism practices. The method is based on universal rules of yoga that ultimately allow the practitioner to develop highly intelligent and mindful practice.

Our training starts with a strong physical foundation, evolving into energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual practice. Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers of Vikasa Yoga and dedicated practitioners to gain in-depth understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of yoga practice.

The Vikasa yoga system encourages function within an existing society, rather than against it or apart from it. This allows for deeper connections with the spiritual and physical beings that surround us on a daily basis. When individuality is inspired and oneness within community is celebrated,
the teachings become inclusive of infinite possibilities.

OUR VAST EXPERIENCE ENRICHES YOURS

Training will be led by a team of expert teachers, each sharing their knowledge over 4 weeks.

  • KONSTANTIN MIACHIN

    FOUNDER OF VIKASA ACADEMY

    Kosta’s journey into yoga has taken him to the far reaches of the world, from remote Himalayan ashrams, to his initiation by a master monk in a sacred Sak-Yant ceremony in Thailand. Kosta has undergone extensive training and was certified with five different schools: Yoga 23, Sivananda Yoga, Mysore Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Andiappan Yoga and Universal Yoga and maintains close ties to many other yoga schools around the world. The vision for Vikasa Yoga was born upon realization that the deeper dimension of yoga is a spiritual journey and a conscious evolution of the individual. Seeing this as the ultimate human endeavor, he committed his life to supporting others on this path.

  • Ram Vakkalanka

    YOGA PHILOSOPHY

    The Philosophy classes during the teacher training are taught by Ram Vakkalanka. Ram is a Sanskrit expert, Yoga philosopher, Nada Yogi and Kirtan artist. Ram shares his deep knowledge of Sanskrit, Vedic sciences and philosophy, Nada Yoga, Kirtan and Meditation through workshops, webinars, one-on-one sessions, lectures and talks. His discography includes 23 CDs, a DVD and an online course about the origin and evolution of Yoga. Ram travels across the globe, touching the lives of many people through his teachings. For more about him, please visit ramvakkalanka.com.

  • MICHELLE LAM

    ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY, ALL COURSES

    The Anatomy portion of the Vikasa Yoga Teacher Training is taught by Michelle Lam. Hailing from Hong Kong, Michelle uses practical examples and an easy to understand approach. Michelle reveals the anatomy of the human body, from muscle to bone to spine and how these spinal structures can cause obstacles in asana practice. Asana modification and important precautions are discussed, specifically certain spinal dysfunctions such as prolapsed discs, spondylolisthesis, and scoliosis. Anatomy by Michelle Lam is a must-attend part of the Vikasa Yoga Teacher Training and is considered appropriate for all levels.

  • NIKI LUNDBERG

    TEACHER

    Niki believes that yoga can be life-changing, both on an individual and a collective level. And so her teaching, which she sees as her vocation, is focussed on tapping into yoga’s transformative capacity and providing a means for her students to embark on journeys of self-discovery. She has a background in psychology and an unwavering belief in the importance of combining the physical aspects of yoga with the often neglected spiritual aspects. She facilitates group discussions and lectures on emotional intelligence, personal development and self-love and teaches strong and love-infused classes where breath always comes first.


  • Mikey Lazano

    TEACHER

    Mikey has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things yoga with particular specialisations in intelligent sequencing, yoga anatomy and functional, efficient movement. Mikey draws on aspects of his former professions (firefighter and personal trainer) and his other passion (climbing) in his practices and teachings – focussing on balancing strength and flexibility, prioritizing efficiency and with an overarching emphasis on safety. As well as having a broad and deep knowledge of yoga practices and history (having completed a number of trainings with Vikasa and Universal Yoga), Mikey also has a passion for teaching and a talent for making complex concepts accessible to all.

  • Michael Murray

    TEACHER

    While initially drawn to the physical aspects of yoga, Michael remains stimulated by the interplay between the physical practice and the more spiritual, inner-journey that can be opened up by the physical practice. In pursuit of this interplay, Michael teaches strong and flowy vinyasa classes focussed both on correct alignment and intuitive movement and also facilitates discussions and lectures on emotional intelligence and personal development. With a background as a finance lawyer, Michael understands the importance of rationality and analysis but also the need, at times, to move beyond these concepts, out of the head and into the body.
